Heading South out of Kalona, our address for years, I entered the town of Washington, Iowa. I was born in this town.

It’s late Spring so the corn is not too tall yet! We had a saying, that corn will likely be “Knee-high in the 4th of July!” At the Corn Palace in South Dakota the guide would say that all the corn inside was Iowa corn. The corn on the outside of the building was South Dakota corn, which was too tall to get inside the building! 🙂
